Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Care is like a husbandman who doth guard our treasures:
And the while, all ways he can, spoils our harmless pleasures.
Loving hearts and laughing brows, most he seeks to plunder,
And each furrow that he ploughs turns the roses under.
            —Alice Cary
  Second-hand cares, like second-hand clothes, come easily off and on.
            —Charles Dickens
  As much care as pilots of ships avoid the rocks of the sea.
            —François Rabelais
  As rust eats iron, so care eats the heart.
            —Achilli Richard
